Graduate Education

Two energy and mineral engineering graduate students discussing their coursework

The John and Willie Leone Family Department of Energy and Mineral Engineering houses one graduate program in Energy and Mineral Engineering, which offers both M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. Within this program, you can customize your course of study to facilitate your research interests. Necessarily, the range of active research areas are broad and fully reflected in the research interests of our program faculty.

Whether you choose to specialize in an area of petroleum and natural gas engineering, mining and mineral process engineering, environmental health and safety engineering, fuel science, or energy management and policy, you will receive a flexible yet comprehensive graduate education through a blend of individualized research projects and coursework in core areas of study.

In the Classroom and Beyond

Students in our graduate programs enjoy small personal classes taught by an experienced EME faculty who are internationally recognized for their research contributions. In addition, students have access to a variety of research laboratories and computational facilities within the department. Upon graduation, our students achieve a near 100% job placement rate as our alumni stand at the forefront of energy and environmental engineering with careers in industry, academia, and government.
